Vikings | QB competition wide open
Tue, 17 Jun 2014 11:32:09 -0700

The Minnesota Vikings' quarterback competition this offseason is a wide open battle between QBs Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner will plan on having all three passers see enough snaps in mandatory minicamp to make sure that they all have a "legitimate opportunity" to win the starting job in training camp next month. Zimmer won't rush into a decision, and he made it clear that Cassel won't enter camp as the presumptive starter. Both Cassel and Bridgewater had more snaps than Ponder during organized team activities, and both looked sharper than Ponder.

If the Vikings play it safe, Cassel should be expected to enter Week 1 as the starter. However, Bridgewater is completely capable of winning the starting job, and he'd probably have the most upside immediately of the rookie passers in the league if he's starting. Whoever starts in Minny, though, is a shaky backup QB for your fantasy squad.
